3/25/2008 Pam Without Boundaries

Seriously—a new B-52s record. Thr first in 16 years. Along with the 25th Anniversary Boiled in Lead release, and Gary Louris playing that night, it felt like high school this morning. We also heard new local music from El Guante with an incredible spoken-word piece, and the new Southside Soul Volume One. Congratulations to South Minneapolis for the 20-track representation on that.

3/24/2008 Health Notes

Queen of Fats
Susan Allport

A nutritional whodunit that takes readers from Greenland to Africa to Israel, The Queen of Fats gives a fascinating account of how we have become deficient in a nutrient that is essential for good health: the fatty acids known as omega-3s. Writing with intelligence and passion, Susan Allport tells the story of these vital fats, which are abundant in greens and fish, among other foods. She describes how scientists came to understand the role of omega-3s in our diet, why commercial processing has removed them from the food we eat, and what the tremendous consequences have been for our health. In many Western countries, epidemics of inflammatory diseases and metabolic disorders have been traced to omega-3 deficiencies.
